nice rr MB

I'm going to check out my gym's run club this Sat at 7am. It's free for members, and my new friend, speedy-fast-ballerina-mom, loves teh trainer who runs it. So I'm going to check it out.

MBelle, if sugarloaf doesn;t have masters classes (I don;t think JC does), check out swim atlanta. when I looked into it, SA was cheaper (and they are better IMO). Wanna meet me at Mountain Brook on 4/26 for an indoor tri? I think I'm going to do that one too

veryerin~ and welcome! I have used and liked Hal Higdon's training plans, and I know others here have as well. Of course, I've only done half-marys but I think at least one person here used his plan for a full. He has novice, intermediate, and advanced plans on his site. www.halhigdon.com

mamabeth~Great rr! You rocked it...2:13 with lots of hills is awesome!

Not too much excitement going on here today. DS had music class this morning, which I realized at the end of class was the first class of the new session (which I hadn't registered for yet) rather than the last class of the old one. We had a make-up class to use anyway, but I felt a little bad. Guess I need to get on the ball and get registered.

I'm making my first attempt ever at homemade granola right now. I just got tired of paying so much for the storebought, even though I love it, and figured it can't be THAT hard. Of course, I couldn't find a recipe that I liked or that called for what I wanted to put in, so I had to kind of wing it. I'm getting adventurous in my old age, I used to be a VERY strict recipe follower. In just the past month, I've just kind of made up stuff for enchiladas, potato soup, and now granola. Crazy!

Nice RR, mamabeth!

I'm feeling exhausted and overworked, and a little stressed about ds's birthday party which is the day after I get back from a conference for which the paper is mostly done and I have sixty exams to grade... wah!

My half turns out to have hills (which I didn't bother to check out) and I'm freaking out. (It's flat here.) I did hill repeats on my treadmill today which - was a good workout but not as satisfying as a longer run. Maybe I can work in a short hill run once a week before my 9am class.

Today, at work, I participated in the theft of a colleague's shoe, and the composition of a ransom note for said shoe. I do not know why this makes me laugh so hard. We're just going to wait for him to figure it out. (It wasn't a shoe currently in play, but a new one from a recently delivered package. A shoe he was wearing would be a wierd thing to steal.) (I'm an adult, I swear.)

I put three different ones (best I could do) on my flickr page

Just back from a last minute, late season XC ski with my friend Carol. So fun. Little blizzard here today cancelled school :, I got in a bonus ski for the season and a little chatting with a good friend.

Thanks Jo for the words, it's nice sometimes just to be heard.

Another 5 in the jogger today - ds was asleep within moments and I was just left alone with the road.

Wow MB, WTG!! Yah, Knoxville has some killer hills!

I just wanted to pop in to complain to someone before bed. I had to miss my lovely afternoon run today because I got a "small" job from my favorite client. Well, that turned out to be the nightmare job from hell, and I just finished it an hour late at 10pm. My first ever, officially late job. I usually plan in plenty of *cushion* so that I won't have to stress out at the last minute. I just despise this situation, because it was a little job (only a few $) but major stress (so I was mean to my little ds who wanted/needed to sit on my lap and my dd2 who has a long day on Tuesdays and I like to snuggle with her at bedtime to make up for it). Not to mention that dh is now irritated (he didn't say it, but I can tell!). And the icing on the cake is that I was so rushed and stressed that I'm sure the quality wasn't up to what I would like it to be. ARG all around.

But I am getting up at 6 am to run 3 miles with my new RP. So it's all good in the end.

G'night everybody! Thanks for letting me vent!

Mel, that's one thing about WAH that can seriously su-uck. I tend to do that when I get "little rush" things in when I am at home. : To the letter. I hope the client was ok with the lateness. I am sure you were capable of explaining that it might not have been as small as it seemed.

Yesterday's run was decent. I am feeling a little better, but still overwhelmed. To the point that I am sweaty (and smelly!) all the time from the stress. Trying to work it out on the TM so I am not so eeww at work. I have back-to-back meetings scheduled all day (including over lunch), every day this week, and I have to do the "productive" stuff when I get home (which is now because I am too tired at night). So I just emailed some stuff off, and I am going to recommend that we change from hard copy to technology for our other meeting, just to waste less and take some of the pressure off me.

I have also spoken some with our IT mgr about our available WAH technologies. They have EVERYTHING, already in-house, to make it so I could reasonably do it. Easily. With instant, face-to-face access to supervisors and coworkers. It just makes me : that the trust isn't there. We're looking at piloting something...

OK. Should really put a couple miles on before the day gets ahead of me.

Psst. Someone start a new thread. Please?
